I am not self employed and work for my parents as caretaker. If anyone knows the forms I need to file for federal, please let me know. Thanks!
I make so little, and H&R Block wants to charge me $500. Steep

Thanks for your help. I'm having a CPA come to the house to help me. I want a W-2 and will try to have my mom's taxes amended. Otherwise it's too expensive for me.

Shelly, AARP and senior centers often extend free tax assistance, but it's typically during prime time tax season.

You can also e-mail the IRS directly. It's sometimes taken up to a month, but the answer I get is in writing and I keep it with the affected tax return in case there's a question or someone counterdicts the advice I've been given.

Unless your parents pay the employer portion on taxes, FICA, workers comp, and withhold taxes from your check, then you an independant contractor and if you earn over $600 a year, you need a 1099. W-2's are for wages from an employer. Speak with a CPA, and ask about trusts and gifting, may help reduce taxes.
